We say goodbye to Amsterdam with a heart that is even lighter than when we first arrived. Amsterdam, for her rather bad girl image, actually became a beautifully quaint city who was in reality a misunderstood good girl.

Finding your creativity may not make you into a world famous artist, but it can open you up to the truth of your spirit. It can help you navigate the lonely waters as you sail toward your tribe. It will free you, release you and allow you to touch on inner peace, love and happiness.

Whether it's listening to a "stranger," helping someone with a task, giving a compliment, whatever it may be -- especially if you don't feel like it. Do it anyway! You never know who you will inspire and uplift.

On Being Unapologetically Black

Charlene Haparimwi

I love my deep melanin, my rich culture, and the voice I have to speak about important issues. I am here for nerdy black girls and boys, quiet black boys and girls, entrepreneurial black boys and girls.

Trudy Bourgeois

It DOES take courage to be ourselves. To live authentically. To step out and over fear. And we can each do it. We can. It just takes practice, patience and perseverance. And it takes ignoring what I like to call "the itty-bitty-pity-committee" inside our heads every day.
